We provide a positive Christian learning experience, allowing children ages 6 weeks to 4 years to develop physically, spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually. We guide children as they grow in their social skills as they learn to relate to both children their own age and adults other than their parents. 

Our school is open 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. 

Parents are able to select 8 a.m - 12 p.m. OR 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the time of registration.
